's cabinet. there's a report that the attorney general will stay on for the second obama administration. we told you yesterday how he wants susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. margaret brennan is in washington. >> reporter: president obama views susan rice as his quarterback at the u.n. when he nominated her to be the ambassador he elevated that role to cabinet level. a status that her predecessors did not have. for this next promotion the president will fight skeptical republicans who question rice's judgment in the days following the benghazi attack. >> i still don't know how anybody of that capacity could have been on television five days later saying the things that were said. i don't know how that can happen. >> she has to answer questions about that. there's no doubt about it. >> reporter: susan rice hit a nerve during a string of television appearances five days after the assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. she didn't call it a act of terror. >> we do not have information at present to lead us to conclude it was preplanned. >> reporter: that's leading
, for the first three years of the obama administration, we saw every negative behavior towards the oil and gas industry that was possible. suddenly in january 2012, we had this suddenly announced all in, all the above energy strategy which didn't mark with all the actions of the prior three years. my guess is my prediction is that we go back to the original obama administration which is negative towards fossil energy, coal will be diminishing in effect over the next four years. >> they are going to take coal out. epa will take coal out. that's what they want. >> exactly. they want it gone. there will be a demonstration this sunday at the white house against the keystone pipeline. they will march around the white house and pull out thousands of people and it will be a sierra club and jim hanson. >> and prolong the keystone study forever. >> right. >> so we never get that pipe line a no-brainer of a decision. >> two years ago, three years ago. >> yes. there's 160,000 miles to pipeline. we are fighting over 1700 mile pipe line we will beat the saudis. >> we can beat -- >> given half after chance.
benghazi and why did the obama administration not brief congress? they will finally brief the committee about benghazi. senator john grasso is on that committee. he is here. >> thanks for having me. >> you will get information for the first time tomorrow. are you disappointing you are just getting this now? >> in a bipartisan way a number of senators asked about this information before the elections and finally we will get it this week. the president is having a press conference wednesday. the american people have a right to know what really happened to benghazi. we've gotten so many conflicting reports. we ned to know the truth and the american people deserve to know the truth. there are four dead americans who i believe didn't have to die. >> do you have any issue with the fact that this is going to be a closed hearing? i realize there are certain information that in every investigation is classified or secret, we have grand jury information and national security information, depending on the investigation. but do you have any sort of -- any because that this is behind closed doors? >
the election because it was political and he obama administration wanted to push it off, including everyone sorting putting his head in the sand about this. and for weeks. so why not -- why not cut through the chase now and get them in here and ask them? >> i'm ready to get them in there. i don't have the authority to subpoena him and bring him in. but secretary of state clinton should be testifying. the mean people need to know from the president. we've had conflicting and evasive answers. we want to make sure this never happens again. are you suspicious still of a coverup, more suspicious or less? >> we need straight answers. you have connecting time lines, you have information that you just don't know where the truth really lies. so he think that, what do you want to call it, stonewalling, coverup, conspiracy. there's a lot of difference phrases but i don't think the american people yet know what happened. >> i would like to know, and i think many of the american people do, what is going on at the an numbers, the cia an numbers? how many agents are there, what are they doing? we are hear
, they said the obama administration was warned about the security in libya and ignored requests for additional protection. >> this administration, including the president himself, has intentionally misinformed, read that, to the american people in the after math of this tragedy. >> reporter: the hearing became a political back and forth between republicans and democrats. >> it is not who the guilty party is, it is you. it is us. it is this committee. >> reporter: this week committees in the house and senate are holding meetings trying to figure out where things went wrong. >> hired individuals from libya to protect us and yet we haven't gotten any answers on why that failed. former cia director david petraeus, who is embroiled in scandal, his affair will not be discussed, he is expected to testify friday for hours. >> he was there when the decisions were made following the attack and during the attack and he is the one who will testify who has been on the ground since september 11. >> reporter: the top republican on the committee tells me after meeting with the fbi director, he
. then later by a texan. the reports state that the obama administration can decline to respond to a request and that it remains to be seen any type of response or recognition will be given to these petitions. martha: wet weather and falling temperatures are what folks are dealing with right now. that is making a miserable situation even worse for the victims of hurricane sandy this morning. folks lining up since early this morning at a distribution site to try to get their hands on some basic necessities and that's where we find our reporter, jonathan hunt, live in brooklyn, new york, this morning. how are they doing there this morning, jonathan? >> they're doing best they can, frankly, martha. this has become a daily routine for many of these people on coney island. the sun comes up with it the lines start forming. what they're here to pick up and what will be laid out along all these tables over the next few minutes are the very basics, food, water, d on theaning supplies. tables. the line will file around and they will be able to take what they believe they need. they spoke to a couple o
, what was the assessment of the obama administration of the area where there consular was? there's a big difference. if this was an area as secure as iceland or waziristan. time confident that there were cables that said there are ten training centers for militias around that location. so i would like to know if the administration basically perceived the location is dangerous there for what were the measures and therefore when the attack occurred, the knd of response would be appropriate to the type of assessment. that is what we want to know. >> chairman of the house securities committee is very direct saying the documents that we see that the cia had prior to general petraeus coming in, it is impossible to believe he thought he w giving as at the time on his testimony, testimony supporting what became the brought fiction of an inch and a video. congressman king is saying point blank. he believes that petraeus was under the thumb of the administration, coerced and blackmail and a statement. >> i think i no general petraeus pretty well. i covered him in 2003 and stayed in touch with them
, martin, thank you. >>> "the new york times" reports that the defense department has given the obama administration an assessment of what this might entail. the pentagon says a u.s. military effort to seize syria's stockpiles of chemical weapons would require upward of 75,000 troops and "the times" reports that senior american officials are concerned that hezbollah has set up camp near the chemical weapons depose. the white house declined to comment. >>> four people were killed in texas when a freight train slammed into a parade float carrying wounded veterans. this is just terrible. it's an accident that happened at a railroad crossing in midland, texas, as the float tried to get around the safety gates and lights. the float was made with a flatbed trailer. in addition to the four deaths, there were 17 people injured. m midland's mayor reacted to the accident. >> this may be one of the most tragic events we've had in our town and it's a sad day. i shook their hands and saw them personally and met their wives. it truly was an honor to be in their presence. these guys are true america
many questions about the attack. the obama administration initially blamed it on protests over an anti-muslim video. that story later shifted, raising questions about what the administration knew and when they knew it was actually a terrorist attack. >> i don't think that the intelligence community, in any way, politicized the intelligence they were providing to members of the administration or congress. i think they gave us their best initial assessments. >> reporter: when petraeus testifies today, he's expected to give a timeline of events leading up to and during the attack. there's been a lot of focus on petraeus' affair and whether his conduct compromised national security. petraeus isn't expected to talk about that, but solely about the benghazi situation. lawmakers say once they complete the hearings on the benghazi attack, they expect to hold a public hearing to disclose any information that isn't classified. rob and paula? >> in the hot seat in more ways than one. preeti arla, live for us in washington. thanks, preeti. >>> and at the white house today, president obama holds cr
by the obama administration to cover up what really happened in benghazi but if you watched any other news source over the past week, you wouldn't have heard these bizarre and counterfactual tales. the reason for this is my next guest will tell you those who get their news solely from right wing media are trapped in a bubble where no facts get inside. here to tell us about the g.o.p. bubble is bill maher the host of hbo's real time with bill maher. it is a genuine pleasure to have you on the show. >> always great to be with you. >> eliot: thank you. did reality and the fake reality of the right wing finally collide on election day and did karl rove melt down in front of us and show he couldn't deal with reality? >> i think that's what we saw there in real time to beg a phrase. on tuesday night. it was a pleasure to watch. yes, this was the last thing that could have done it to them. before this, there was always polling. they lived in their bubble. we had that bit as you pointed out on our show for oh, over a year. we woul
administration had given to blacks, hispanics and young voters during obama's first term. obama, romney argued, had been very generous, quotes around it, to blacks, hispanics and young voters. i once heard a canadian election saying they lost election to people that wanted to stay as part of canada because of ethnic voters. that means not french, not english. this guy, paul ryan who i don't think is right for prime time yet by any means talking about the urban vote. now, they won the other side because they got the most votes. because they won fair and square, which is the first thing ryan said. why do you have to step on his own headline. they won fair and square by saying, oh, it was the black vote. basically, that's what he's saying. >> chris, let me just say, as for romney's comments, i'm still waiting for my gift. i'm waiting for my gift from obama. i haven't received my gift yet. >> where is it? >> maybe it was lost in the mail. >> you may have voted for him without getting that thing in the mail he was supposed to send everybody? >> maybe chris has it. >> i did not get my gift. let me j
democrats and republicans. republicans are critical. they believed the obama administration should have known right away this was not as spontaneous attack. they want to know who knew what, when. did the president know about the attack? when did his national security team know about the attack? there were people in tripoli and libya with the state department saying there was not enough security concerns because of some of the things going on in libya at the time. good >> the senators made remarks about you in ambassador susan rice. what did they say? >> basically, they do not trust her. they think she should have known better. it looked to be a spontaneous response. they think it is clear there was an organized element. the white house is saying, and today we heard from a democrat who said the intelligence community reaffirmed that was the best information they had at the time. she was repeating the information they provided her. now those intelligence committees, they will hear from david petraeus. what do they want to know from former director petraeus? >> they said this was going to
consulate attack. >>> what lawmakers say they want to know about the attack from the obama administration. >> and happening right now, live, these are live pictures senate arms services committee is holding a confirmation hearing for joseph denver. he is slated to take over at commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan. he would replace general john allen. allen was supposed to be pro momentsed to supreme allied commander in europe, but that's on hold right now. after questionable e-mails between allen and a woman in florida were discovered, it was part after investigation that led to the resignation of david petraeus, as ahead of the cia, because of an affair. >>> it is 7:09. breaking news, sal will tell us about it. >> reporter: i have two breakers. one is a house fire in san francisco. news chopper 2 is over this house fire, near the 101/260 interchange in san francisco. and just knowing a little bit about the area, this is an area where there have been plenty of house fires in the last year or two. it's kind of peculiar. firefighters say once portable heaters come in winter, the
and the senate want to know what went wrong, what members of the obama administration knew, what they knew it and why tke th-pbt do more to prevent the attack or respond in time. chief intelligent correspondent catherine herridge is live on capital hill with all of this. catherine the latest. let's start with the testimony of general petraeus and the testimony we just heard about that secretary clinton will attend. >> well, thank you, jenna and good morning. two important developments here on capitol hill. fox' confirmation this morning that the former cia director david petraeus will testify before the house and senate intelligence committees. these will be closed or classified sessions early friday morning, and also confirmation that secretary of state hillary clinton will testify here on the hill and give the read out, or the results of their internal review at the state department about the benghazi attack, and that announcement was made at the house foreign affairs committee a short time ago. >> further i would like to note that secretary clinton has committed to testifying before our
spectacle yesterday of missiles being launched into tel aviv. the obama administration has been supportive of israel. you've seen a lot of condemnation of israel by the nonalign movement led by iran. you would expect iran to twist the facts here. it will be a problem for the wider region if there is a war in gaza, obviously. it brings in the uneasy peace between egypt and israel, camp david accords we shepherded in 1979. egyptian prime minister is in gaza today. there's a three-hour truce. israelis have agreed not to strike while the prime minister is there. the israelis have been very careful to say publicly we want to maintain the peace treaty with egypt. i don't think the egyptians or hamas should be under any delusions here, if hamas rockets continue to be fired into israel, israelis have the responsibility to protect their population. >> egypt has reached out to president obama and the united states saying help us stop the violence there. so, ken, the united states is going to get sucked into this, regardless? >> no, i don't think the united states is going to get sucked in. they've p
exchanges. the obama administration can't just ignore republican ideas, they have to have a conversation about ways to fix the obamacare legislation or reform it so it actually will work. right now it is slated not to work and be a bigger mess. cheryl: 2014 is not very far away. the states are not prepared with these exchanges. what are you hearing? >> i am hearing that. one of the reasons is the obama administration was waiting until after the election to go forward with the regulations telling states how to go forward. politico has a piece talking about how there will be the regulations not only affecting the states and how they run their exchanges but also affecting businesses and specifically the insurers and how they can prepare products that will be salable, so waiting on the regulations of a political purpose will not help getting the law implemented in a clear and clean way. cheryl: want to ask about the issue of medical device makers and that new tax coming, that hit a lot of stocks last week. we watched it on the business side, but what do you make of that? >> obviously a disap
said if you look at states where obama administration bombarded women with messages, you saw much bigger gaps. >> chris: senator bayh, you know, it's interesting because i was thinking of 2004 as welch pendulum swings back and forth. after 2004 when bush had issues, and he still won, democrats were disspirited. obviously four years later they came roaring back. what do republicans need to do? >> two elections i'm thinking of, chris, number one, four years ago 2008 when some parts of the democratic party said this is a vote for a new progressive era and left-leaning government. it turns out that wasn't quite the case. our party needs to be modest in the mandate we take away from it. we need togone from progressive center out. then 1988 from the republicans' perspective. democrat just lost two elections in a row to ronald reagan. what did we do? we nominated michael dukakis who is a fine man but a liberal from massachusetts. it took three beatings for to us realize you have to make common cause of moderates. that is the internal struggle the republican have to go through. true to pr
scandals, events and even acts of war that the obama administration worked to keep secret until after the election. on friday, three days after, we learn that david petraeus, the head of the cia, was stepping down because of an extramarital affair. first i want to say that david petraeus is one of a greatest genuine hero. he is the first general in generations to turn around a war america was losing to iraq and 2006 and 2007 and he helped divert defeat. and for general petraeus to do what he did when he was director of the central intelligence agency, it was triple problem inmatic and opened him up to blackmail. for people who say it's a private matter, you are simply wrong. you can't have the cia director of america involved in a fair. once the affair was revealed, there was not a question in petraeus's mind that he needed to resign. but the story doesn't simply end there. now the white house claims that the president first received information about the affair on thursday. but a source close to journallest ron kessler, who will join me in a few minutes, says that's highly unlikely,
,000 people have signed it. in the past the obama administration has said it would respond to any petition against 25,000 signatures or more. so far no comment from the white house. >>> mitt romney's facebook page is losing a lot of its likes. romney's facebook page was losing 593 likes an hour and as of this morning, his page was losing more than 600 likes per hour. still romney is not exactly hurting for social media followers at last check his facebook page had over 12 million likes. >> there's still enough to time to have a successful holiday feeling. >>> they walked off the job more than a week ago. the one thing now providing hope for a resolution. >>> but up first, a flag rises in honor of the nation's veterans, why it also is serving as a symbol of hope.

from a belly? people from 19 states have filed petitions from america. on the obama administration's we the people website. and some are close to getting the 25,000 signatures needed to require an administration response with texas a mere 600 short as of monday afternoon. it is particularly feasible for texas to withdraw from the union and to do so would protect the citizen standard of living and resecure their rights in accordance with the beliefs of our founding fathers that are no longer reflected by the federal government. so what do pandas make out of all of this? >> they don't know anything. they are stupid pandas. what do you make of this? some states can do this. some states can't. >> i think texas can pull it off. they are in a grown upstate. i think louisiana was a close second. they would be more like the high school kid that ran away from home and spend all of their money on booze and hung out with mississippi, got in trouble and they lived in texas for a little while until we took them back. >> you know, it is an interesting point. the idea creates an experiment in which yo
go up, go back to where they were in 2001. now rubin is not part of the obama administration, but some people who are important members of the economic team are still his accolades. it's republicans saying we'll come towards you and we have a democrat saying, that's nice, but we want that plus the marginal income rates to go higher on the wealthy. >> i want to resentence you. i'm going to read a sentence you wrote because it's a great sentence. >> he wants to hear that again. >> could you say that again? >> tricky, tricky. even if they were in a mood to make a deal, asking congressional republicans to sign off on a tax increase is like asking an orthodox jew to eat a lobster and bacon club sandwich on a saturday. brilliant, but what i want to talk about is who is the god that we're referring to there for congressional republicans? rush, grover, the spirit of the republican party? and we know that wouldn't happen, but you wouldn't write that if you didn't think there was a chance of that tax increase happening. do you think we're going to get that in the end? >> i actually do.
preaches to. so heading now into another four years of the obama administration, where are we and why are we here? how to get somewhere else? how do we live up to that promise? what went wrong -- what's going right in what can we do about it going forward? >> simple. first of all, i don't thing that the favorability ratings -- there we go. so i don't think favorability rating in the pew surveys are evidence of whether were doing something wrong or right and i think it's a huge mistake for anybody who practices public diplomacy to think his or her job is to win a popularity contest. so while i guess maybe some of us in the bush administration can take a certain pleasure at the fact that in 2008 the favorability ratings for the united states for higher in four out of the five surveyed air countries. i'm not even going to bring that up. but i do think it's a big mistake and in my view during my short tenure as undersecretary is to disabuse that notion and rather to focus attention on what public diplomacy can do to achieve specific ends that are part of -- that are close in foreign polic
more information from the obama administration on just what the heck happened in benghazi and around benghazi. he's scheduled to give a news conference at the bottom of the hour and we are going to have measure on that. our dana bash has been doing the best she can to take in all of the information. listen, this is tricky. so many of these stories are interconnected. there is a lot of reporting. not all confirmed, but u maybe just start with this. how has this matter worked out that general petraeus will indeed show up on capitol hill and testify voluntarily? >> well, it started with the senate intelligence chairwoman, dianne feinstein telling us yesterday that that was her desire. in her words, that's a big stone left unturned if petraeus doesn't come up here and tell members of congress what he knew about what went on in benghazi, so that's where it started. then late yesterday, members of the senate intelligence committee met and decided it was imperative to invite him. dianne feinstein told our ted barrett that petraeus has said he will come talk to the senate intelligence commit
tell fox director petraeus was wedded to the explanation of the obama administration that it was linked to the video and a demonstration that spun out-of-control. this is in stark contrast to a briefing on september 13, from the f.b.i., where they were told the evidence pointed to al qaeda. >> the documents we see that the c.i.a. had, the information they had, prior to general petraeus coming in it is impossible to believe he thought he was giving us honest testify. >>reporter: through the personal contact the general has insisted the resignation was not connected to ben goes. >>shepard: and the calls for a special committee? >>reporter: right now we have three tracks to the investigation: the first track is the warnings, the request for supreme court by the consulate that were denied before the attack. the second track is the administration's statement that it was a demonstration that spun out-of-control and response to the video. and, now, the third track, whether former director petraeus the statement to congress of the attack was impacted by the knowledge he was the focus of an f.b
of president obama in the past. in your book you said the obama administration has sent contradictory messages and bringing into question the level of support for israel. many palestinian leaders believe they can get their state without offering any concession of their own. are you still, sir, as critical of the president saying hamas needs to stop the attacks? >> i said it very clearly in the past. president obama made very few mistakes coming to cairo in 2009. it doesn't work that way. we have to speak in a different language in the middle east. i know yesterday that prime minister netanyahu spoke with the president and we have the support of the u.s. behind us, but too early to call. we have to see if we will act and go into the ground operation and then we'll know if the u.s. for now we have the support and grateful for the support, the technical support and we also see the technology that we're using to bring down some of the missiles. >> danny dennen deputy speaker of the knesset. thank you very much, sir. >>> coming up next hour, i'll talk with a member of the palestinian legislative co
's decision overturns two previous court rulings allowing the case to proceed. the obama administration has followed the bush administration in seeking the lawsuit's dismissal. your response to these developments? >> this is an extremely common development, unfortunately. congress, media, the citizenry to relish the federal judiciary is probably the most disgraceful since 9/11. they're supposed to be the branch that was designed to hold the last couple executive branch accountable. the most shocking is not that they did not -- the most amazing fact is not a single victim of the war on terror abuses have been allowed even to have their day in court, let alone to achieve justice. in each and every case, the courthouse doors have been slammed in their face by having either claims of radical secrecy or government immunity, the idea our government officials are immune from the law, from any consequences, even when they commit the most egregious crimes. i think that is what history will view as the most profound failure. >> thank you for being with us, glenn greenwald his latest book, "with liber
to know who created the talking points used by the obama administration after the deadly attack on the consulate in benghazi. they want to determine why so many administration official including ambassador to the u.n. susan rice said the attack was related to an anti-muslim video. administration officials defended the initial response saying it came from the best information they had at the time that didn't compromise classified data. >>> we now know more tonight about why the fbi got so involved in the scandal that brought down david petraeus. his former mistress paula broadway is accused -- broadel with a swell accused of sending -- broadwell is accused of sending cyber ep mails to a friend. in this case, the bureau found e-mails that showed they knew the travel schedule. that was enough to keep the fbi involved updating director david mueller and attorney generaleribbing holder. >> president obama is in thailand mark the first foreign hip since winning a second trip in the white house. he went to bangkok to meet the 8-year-old king and after walking with the prime ministerof
. it's certainly a huge deal for the obama administration. we have new details about when and how the president was told about the allen bombshell. and the latest development, our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is joining us now. jessica, first of all, what are you learning? >> hi, wolf. we understand that the president was first told there might be trouble with general allen and this investigation on friday, when the white house's counsel office was notified that there could be trouble with his nomination to become nato supreme allied commander. then on monday evening, the president was notified that secretary of defense leon panetta has referred to matter to the defense department's inspector general. keep in mind, now, according to the timetable, the president had also just been told on thursday about general petraeus' indiscretions, so it must have been an awful lot to take in all in one week, right after the election. secretary -- press secretary jay carney says, though, it was out of the white house's hands, this time frame, for their notification. listen to
security in libya? two, did the obama administration try to mislead people as to the nature of the attack? and, three, did the administration deny pleas from our people at the consulate for help? let's start with the first. why didn't -- why didn't -- why wasn't there more security in libya previous -- previous to these attacks? >> well, first of all, assessments from the ground apparently were not getting back to washington, were not getting high enough. that compound was under surveillance by the local services. benghazi itself is a jungle. all sorts of islamic groups. somebody should have raised the red flag early on and either fortified that consulate or simply closed it. somebody made a mistake. i don't know who that was, whether it was the state department or the cia or the combination of the two. but they probably, in the loit of today, they should have pu pulled out a long time ago and run all these operations -- >> just going on to topic number two, did the obama administration try to mislead us as to the nature of the attack? we all heard what susan rice said. republicans say sh
i said, if you look more at the states where they -- the obama administration bombarded women with messages, you saw a much bigger gap. >> chris: it is interesting, because i was thinking of 2004 as we'll, the pendulum swings back and forth and after the 2004, which bush obviously had a lot of issues and, still won, the democrats were disspirited and four years later came roaring back, what do republicans need to do. >> two issues i'm thinking of, number one, four years ago, 2008, when some parts of the democratic party said this was a vote for a new progressive era and more left-leaning government and turned out that that was not quite the case and our party needs to be fairly modest then mandate we take away from this and governor from the center-out, progressive center, one and two, i'm thinking of 1988 from the republicans' perspective. democrats had lost two elections in a row to ronald reagan. and what did we do? nominated michael dukakis, a fine man but a liberal from massachusetts and the internal struggle republicans will go through, they have to be true to their prin
the obama administration spend yuyour tax money not just on health services, but p.r. to convince that you should you love obamacare? a house committee wants to know. they subpoenaed hhs committee chair kathleen sebelius. we have a panel here to discuss it. rick, what does the hill want? >> the hill wants to know what kathleen sebelius was spenning mono, and whether there was money proanted for hhs publicity, directed to improve the standing of the obama health care law. if it was spent on those purposes, it wasn't really doing its job. the obamacare is not nearly as possible as the administration wanted. i would also say, look, it is the law of land. as a political matter, this is a very legitimate inquiry, but have you more and more republicans saying, it's time to move on. i don't see this as a fruitful area to go through the things that happened in the last term. it is the law of the land. there is no point it try to repeal it as this jumpghture, right now. i don't know whati are going to accomplish. >> greta: apparently, gawp, correct me if i am wrong, one of the programs spent $20 mi
at the performance of susan rice, among others, and the obama administration, and so, harry reid sent a letter yesterday and told john mccain he is not going to get the special committee he wanted. but i think the administration simply is going to have to watch republicans spend their energy on this. david petraeus tried to make the argument, defending susan rice, that she was repeating talking points, that she'd been given for the reason that the administration did not want to alert terrorist groups that we knew that they were behind the attack. i'm not sure that that's going to quiet the criticism. we're just going to have to see how long it plays out. >> you saw the meeting yesterday with the president and congressional leaders on the fiscal cliff. how confident are you that a compromise will be reached in a timely fashion? >> pretty confident, actually, alex. you know, i thought the outcome of that meeting was about as positive as you could hope to see from a bipartisan meeting of congressional leaders with the president of the united states, all four leaders, pelosi, mcconnell, reid, boeh
group of donors. romney arguing president obama won in part because of gifts the obama administration had given to particular groups in this country. what the president, president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition. give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government. and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> reporter: among those groups the gifts went to, romney discusses the african-american community, young people and the hispanic community, here, offering one of the gift to them. >> what the president did is he gave them two things. one a big gift on immigration with the dream act amnesty program. >> reporter: and the second thing in order to get hispanic voters. number two put in place obamacare which is basically $10,000 a family. a proven political strategy, which is give a bunch of money from the government to a group and guess what they will vote for you. >> reporter: sources telling me this has been romney's argument since the moment he realize heed lost, telling the closest circle the very next morning that america i
gears and talk about jobs. the obama administration repeatedly asked defense contractor not to comply with t with it and warn they might be laid off in advance of cuts and of course recently boeing laid off 30% of its management force and other companies are expected to do the same. do you think the president played politics with these job cuts? >> i don't know if he played politics, but i know this. if you understand defense appropriations that that $600 billion in the sequestration, most of it is in research and development and procurement. only 15% of any procurement contract or research and development is spent in the first year. so the immediate cuts from this don't have very much impact. second, when people talk about jobs, the defense and aerospace association said there would be a million jobs lost if that $600 billion went into effect. you know what? s.e., there's only 3.5 million bornste jobs in defense in the aerospace industry, that including 757s. they're going to lose 33% in one year of their entire work force because of a 10% cut in defense? weren't a job welfare progra
of the obama administration knew it was going on, they buried it until after the election and going on and on and on and on. does that matter? >> well, i don't know if it's true. if it's true i guess it does. they have managed to bury the benghazi story. the media has said since romney didn't bring it up, they didn't feel any obligation to bring it up. if they put that past the election and they put this petraeus thing past the election. this second term is going to be pretty ugly people not going to go away. >> it won't be the bad guys some indication that his whatever you want to call her, his friend may have made a speech and given away some secret information that she may or may not have gotten. >> bill: only thing that could happen is if holder gets dragged into this because he may because he obviously overseas the fbi and he knew what was going on and if he see that he bury it and got fast and furious on his resume. >> you can bury certain things for only a certain amount of time. and second terms are not kind to second term presidents. i think coupled with the stagnant econom
paula broadwell. defense secretary panetta's comments on the scandal and his future in the obama administration. then there's the fbi agent and friend of jill kel yae's. he's now subject of an internal fbi probe himself for inappropriate behavior. let's get into the details. overnight the pentagon announced this, that general allen's nomination to be allied supreme commander over all of anywnato been delayed and panetta has asked them to ex pa diet joseph dunfer. >> while this matter is under investigation and before the facts are determined, general allen will remain commander. general allen is entitled to due process in this matter. in the meantime the secretary has asked the president, and the president has agreed, to put his nomination on hold until the relevant facts are determined. >> all right. that's pentagon spokesman george little. he's on a trip to asia with the defense secretary. more on that trip in a minute. allen, who is married, denied any wrongdoing and, for now, remains commander in afghanistan as the investigation continues. defense secretary leon panetta was i
mitt romney saved it. now the obama administration can spend the next years putting this new effect, the framework upon which future reforms to the health care system are based. the idea of universal health care is probably permanent and mitt romney is a big part of that. >> that's a fascinating theory. >> that's a footnote for it. it's great. >> yeah. conspiracy theorists would say it was all a plan to get obama care implemented. bring romney in, he'll lose, and it will be a validation for obama care to go forward. we have a cheeky metric by which to measure romney's popularity to say, in the hours, the 24 hours following his loss, his likes on facebook fell by more than 10,000. that's a steep and sharp decline. you know, the question is as you said, self-identified romneyists perhaps will not exist. what are romneyists? do they represent some moderate wing of the party that will get overrun by the tea partiers and voices like newt gingrich that think it's all about being more conservative? what does to be a romneyist mean? >> if only he had been clear enough throughout the campaig
this morning that the obama administration doesn't really see petraeus as their guy. he served in multiple administrations has the backing of a lot of republicans but with him now testifying before the senate intelligence committee tomorrow is this where the white house could start to feel more the heat? >> absolutely. i mean, look, he was somebody else's pick but he did serve as somewhat of a sense of continuity for the administration serving multiple posts under the president. i would imagine most of the press corps will want to talk to the president and get him on the record about some of these issues. the attorney general of the united states along with the head of the fbi were investigating david petraeus for six months and the president didn't know about it? that's going to be a very interesting and hard-hitting question to put before the president then when petraeus goes before congress to discuss benghazi, i imagine some of these questions might come up again and people will try to get them in some type of cross fire amongst each other and there will be plenty of blame to go around
from him? joining me now is congressman chaffetz, one of the biggest critics of the obama administration's handling of the benghazi attack. what do you want to know? the senate has its own concerns. >> well i would love to know from the president back on june 6th when there was a terrorist attack on our benghazi facility was the president aware of that, what did he do about it. during the attack itself does not appear based on the information the department of defense revealed on friday, that the president took any action or gave any directive for our military to go in and engage in the fire fight and extract our forces and then the third part i want to know about is, why did the president mislead the american people about what happened on the ground because it was clear that the intelligence officers, the state department was able to witness this in real time. there was no indication there was a mob. no indication that a video was the jen ne sis of this. why did the administration for weeks mislead the american people. >> they claim they were not misleading the american p
you think the election affected the timing of this. did hamas step up its attacks to test the obama administration? did netanyahu act waiting for romney to be elected and not seeing that. >> it's hard to know. i can't get quite in their heads. in that part of the world they're aware of the american political calendar, as everyone is, and there is a sort of freezing of decision making in this period leading up to an american election. let's face it, a president romney would have been a very different approach. >> and probably preferred by netanyahu. >> it's seen that way. paezble to that hamas is testing -- had waited to test until now. the truth is that the arab spring has many, many positive qualities for us in the west. the possibility that the people in that part of the world will be connected with their leadership. the elimination of the democracy deficit, all of those things. but one of the downsides to the arab spring is that we knew how to do business with many of these deck taters and autocrates, we knew how to conduct anti-iranian foreign policy to stop their nuclear develo
of the obama administration's policies. >> okay. so this is part of the twilight zone narrative in which superstorm sandy or so-called presidential gifts to minorities in this case a benghazi cover-up conspiracy is to blame for republicans losing the election. now, this is not to say that there can't be questions about what happened in benghazi. four americans died, and we must prevent such a tragedy ever happening again. but to suggest the phrasing of the perpetrators as al qaeda or extremist elements amounts to a vast conspiracy is, frankly, ridiculous. just for recollection's sake, let's remember the very real consequences of the bush administration's actions on faulty intelligence regarding iraq and a guy called saddam hussein. >> we were told by no less a person by your own secretary of state that he had an active and ongoing program for acquiring and developing weapons of mass destruction. >> and i fully believe that all of the evidence on that is not yet in. >> yes, apparently ambassador bolton believes in intelligence can be quite fluid in some circumstances, up to four years lat

to the bottom of it. what republicans are saying is the obama administration has put out very conflicting stories about what happened in benghazi, when they knew about it, what they did about it and how they sort of perpetuated the idea this was a spontaneous attack. so the republicans on capitol hill are saying we only need to get through the double talk. get to the bottom of what happened. we lost an american am bas dpor. three other americans. president obama said i did everything i could as soon as we found out this is happening. then how come the whole place was left completely undefended? there's so many big ands of questions. that's what senator mccain was getting at yesterday when he said let's put together a committee that can look at this specifically, rather than having it scattered and half a dozen committees looking at it. this may give us a better answer faster. that's ultimately what everybody wants to keep the americans safe abroad and in the future. >> is this part of the mccain and obama conflict from 2008? >> i think mccain -- right after obama was elected in 2008, mcca
and the obama administration over susan rice. she went out on the sunday talk shows and got some of the information wrong about what happened in benghazi. president obama on wednesday strongly defended her in the wake of attacks from senators john mccain and lindsey graham. >> obama: if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and besmirch her reputation it is outrageous. >> this fight over benghazi is getting nasty peter ogborn. >> yeah, it is. it is. and sadly, it's becoming politicized because there may be a real issue there but who knows. there's so much noise from republicans, especially that we're clouding the issue. >> dan henning with the "full court press" this morning. dan? >> this is the "full court press." >> good morning, gentlemen. oth
one more term. he has promised robust oversight of the obama administration. >> i am sure he has. and speaking of oversight, isn't that one of the few places on the senate side where there might be a new -- sorry. >> tom carp ser set to take over. leiberman is retiring. the ranking republican is term limited out as we were talking about with the house votes. senate republicans have the same rule. he has been very serious. he has a very talented group of people working for him on that committee doing investigations and what not. and carper, i actually think, that they will get along pretty well and both will likely be focused on the government affairs part of the committee. not that they will ignore homeland security. i am sure they won't. but i think they have an interest in that area. >> top seats changing hands. >> the budget committee. conrad is retiring. patty murray is up for the seat. we say she is the favorite for it, and i agree. but i do think there is a possibility that she does not take it. last time i talked to her people they said she hasn't made a decision yet. you

. >> stephanie: okay, lieutenant colonel calf peters fox security news expert. >> the obama administration just as the administration claimed that there was purely coincidence of the benghazi conflict was attacked on the anniversaries of september 11th. now it's purely coincidence that this extramarital affair surfaces right after the election. not before but after but before the intelligence chief go to capitol hill to get grilled. i subject that these chicago guys knew of this affair for a while, held it in their back pocket until they needed to play the card. >> these tough chicago guys like eric cantor. >> and the republican guy from washington like jacki schechner was telling us? yeah, chicago guys. i'm sure sheldon knows some chicago guys, get some stuff done. >> stephanie: i'll have a little chat with karl rove about the money. >> where did you keep it? what did you do with it. >> stephanie: check in that bag of vipers for the money. >> where's our money, a bag of broken glass. there's your money. >> it's right out there outside of the window. lean out a little further. >> stephanie: jon
is what he says, in part. relationships between the obama administration and business community, first of all, he says has been strained but the business community vigorously supports efforts to conclude a bipartisan fiscal accord. i believe tax increase, especially for the wealthiest, are appropriate, but only if they are joined by serious cuts in discretionary spending and entitlements. number of ceos and companies agree and support principles that call for a comprehensive and balanced solution to the debt problem, increased tax revenues and decreased spending. it's a fascinating op-ed. >> i generally don't like to associate myself with telling people to read lloyd blankfein op-eds, but it's really well written. it's not new. the only thing that's new, you're seeing business leaders say, yes, i get it. we've got to pay higher taxes, but he frames it really well. he really frames the business and the president of the administration have got to come together. he starts the column that way, talks about lincoln and team much rivals, doris kearns go goodwin's book and says this is like ro
specific things have members said about the obama administration's response that has not been adequate enough? >> will come you hear different democrat and from republicans. republicans are particularly critical. they believe the obama administration should have known right away. this is not a spontaneous attack, not part of the protest, for example. they want to understand who knew what when. what does the president know about the attack? what is his national security team now? now they want to know who knew about the securities and the lead up to the attack because there were people in tripoli and libya saying that there wasn't enough security concerns because of the things going on in libya. >> mccain, graham and india yesterday made remarks about u.n. ambassador susan rice. what did they say in what is it mean in context context of the benghazi attacks? >> well, basically what they said is they don't trust her. they said she should have known better that you say five days after the attack but it looks to be a spontaneous response to anti-muslim video. they said she should have know
from washington. brianna, where does the obama administration stand right now with all of this? >> reporter: well, right now we are hearing from the white house who says this won't affect the president's attention to the fiscal cliff situation. that said, we do know that he has had to spend time on this. a limited amount of time in the words of white house press secretary jay carney, but we also know that a lot of staff hours have had to go to dealing with this situation with generals petraeus and allen. yesterday this was the first press conference that we had a chance to ask jay carney about this situation. and he said that the president thinks very highly of general allen, of his service to his country, of the job he's done in afghanistan. and one reporter asked if he, if the president has the full faith, or if general allen, i should say, has the full faith of president obama. and here's what carney said. >> he has faith in general allen, believes he's doing and has done an excellent job at isap. and i would rephrase the pentagon for the process underway with regards to gen
to that post. >> it tells you a great deal about the obama administration that the secretary of defense is a consolation prize. this would be a remarkable insult to the men and women in uniform to nominate for secretary of defense a man who made his political career trashing our military. criticizing it. who told lies about war crimes in vietnam and more recently joked about how side and uneducated our soldiers are. i don't want to hear john kerry is a combat veteran. so is benedict and nold. >> are you out of your mind? john kerry got the silver star for his service in street a number. this is not about running for president. it's about swift boating people. john kerry would be a great addition to the president's staff. i have known him since 1985 and he never mentioned he would like to be the secretary of defense. he wrote foreign relations, foreign relations, foreign relations as his three choices for committee assignment. megyn: he wouldn't bronze star and silver star. the reports were he threw hose medals over a fence in protest. a lot of veterans protested the war. but he did toni
as one of the most popular members of the obama administration. clinton talks about how she's been in the political spotlight for 20 years. and she wants her life back. fair enough. says she wants to sleep, relax. okay. but what about after that? while hillary clinton has repeatedly said she won't run for president again, this is the same woman who says politics is in her dna. she is after all a clinton. and with a resume that includes secretary of state, senator, first lady, well, a democratic nomination is probably hers for the taking if she wants it. vice president joe biden's keeping the door open to a possible 2016 presidential run although he recently acknowledged it might depend on the economy. a memo to the vice president might also depend on hillary clinton. here's the question, is hillary clinton the answer? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. never too early to start speculation. >> special for those of us who are political news junkies. i've been saying for a while no inside information. i suspect she still has that passio
the obama administration from defending delma to arguing it is unconstitutional has recommended to the court that its grants in the winter case. there's a lot of petition confront. there's only two cases where there's a court of appeals opinion. the winter case in the second circuit and one from the first circuit. i think the winter case is the more likely one, in part because the justice department has recommended that. so i really think that case is going to become that case is going to be a. i would be extremely surprised if the supreme court does not grant review in that case. and we cannot get a decision on the constitutionality of doma. the other two cases, the famous case which chad those a little bit about, is the prop eight case in california. that's from ninth circuit appeals decision, which by a two to one vote struck down prop eight. the supreme court denied search. the impact of that will be to affirm the ninth circuit opinion and prop eight will be unconstitutional. i think it's a big question what the court is going to do. there aren't and speak to the court that look, you don
